Every mother and father wants happy healthy kids. Children learn from their parents first, and mostly from watching them. So you better be healthy and happy yourself if you want your little ones to grow in happiness.
Imagine going to the dentist and hearing a lecture on the importance of good hygiene… But then she smiles and you see her rotting teeth. Or your doctor telling you to quit smoking and then blowing cigarette smoke in your face. Your reaction would be “This person is phony.”
Be An Example For Your Kids
Similarly, it's important to show your kids you value your health if you want it to rub off on them. Even if you don't have it totally together…
If you can be a fairly consistent example, your child will have a better chance of developing associations between foods that make them feel good, and foods that don't.
Good Food is Love
One of the most potent ways of raising happy healthy kids is to feed them a healthy diet. Above all, start good habits, and tell them as soon as possible about the benefits of healthy food. As a rule, kids raised on healthy foods tend to make healthy food choices as adults.
Processed, packaged, and refined foods are filled with GMOs, sugar, chemicals, colorings, and pesticides. Besides, kids are especially sensitive to additives. As a result, they are poison to their developing bodies.
Eating GMO foods can lead to serious problems like obesity, allergies, high blood pressure, Alzheimer's, joint pain, newborn diseases, diabetes and mental/emotional issues.
There have been studies on GMOs showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerating aging, and infertility. Food that has been genetically modified leaves toxins inside us that causes long-term health problems. This is nuts!
Food companies not required to label GMO Food
It can be overwhelming to make sense of ingredients and know the REAL truth about the food you're eating. Especially when food companies are not even required to label foods that have been Genetically Modified. But there is a SUPER simple way to solve this problem in just a few short minutes. The Truth About Toxic Ingredients in Your Food
Raising Happy Healthy Kids
I NEVER imagined that raising happy healthy kids could be difficult. Instead, foods I thought were “perfectly healthy” turned out to be completely toxic. It seemed impossible — and even silly.
And yet, this is the truth. Our food and water are NOT as clean as they should be. It's NOT as safe as how the food corporations, the FDA, the Government, and the TV advertisers say it is.
And I feel that everyone on this planet deserves to know this. I won't choose to live in ignorance, and I know you feel the same.
The FDA and most Governments around the world APPROVE the use of different toxic chemicals in your food, water, and even supplements. You see, instead of making sure corporations NEVER leave any kind of toxic compound in their products…
The FDA actually works with the companies to figure out the “safe amount” of poison allowed on your fruits, veggies, cereals, milk, and anything you eat or drink.
Usually, after testing the effect of certain pesticides or GMO food on rats, they slap the “GRAS” (Generally Recognized As Safe) status on that toxic chemical.
Meanwhile, I know this is depressing, but this is the world we live in.

Parenting play very vital role for healthy kids life. Healthy eating habits or giving health tips to your kids is the best way to educate and make it addicted for good habits.
I totally agree!
Your article “Raising Happy Healthy Kids” reminds me of Laurels Kitchen Cookbook. The first time I associated food with love was when I read Laurel’s book.
There was another writer who said that most of what we eat in western culture is not food. It can best be described as food like substances.
It’s frightening and dishonest how the consumer is fooled into to thinking they are buying healthy food when they are actually buying poison.
Thanks for the book tip Gary! I’ll definitely check it out.
I really love your site. Great information on giving your kids quality of life through healthy eating habits and living a healthy lifestyle.
I don’t have any kids yet, but I always worry about how I can teach them to live a healthy lifestyle. Growing up, my parents did what they could to teach me, but it was always hard due to financial reasons.
But I think this is perfect for any new parents or potential parents to read.
Thanks for the feedback Troi. xo
